Overview

"This concise, illustrated history of Portugal offers an introduction to the people and culture of the country and its empire, and to its search for economic modernisation, political stability and international partnership." The present Concise History was research during the years which followed the fall of Portugal's dictators in 1974, and it has since become the standard single-volume work. This second edition brings the story up to date and the revised bibliography discusses the current state of historical writing on Portugal.

    Horrible, Inaccurate Book

    If you are interested in the history of Portugal, this is one book you should NOT buy. I have read numerous books about Portugal's history, and have studied it as well. I don't know where the author of this book got his information from. It's totally inaccurate, with his opinions or observations stated as fact. If I could give it less than one star, I would. It deserves nothing. Simply horrible, inaccurate, useless...
